The 'unit' parameter in ppp-2.4.2+ can make sure that L2TP/IPsec will
use interface names with higher unit numbers so that the lower ones
are free for the ADSL link. See also:

This is assuming that Bob actually uses L2TP/IPsec. Because I have a bit
of a problem understanding his question. My alternative interpretation
is that he might be using L2TP for the ADSL connection itself (similar
principle as PPPoE and PPTP).
